Training and Administration of the Reserve (TAR) CAPT Selective Retention and CDR Selective Early Release from Active Duty Boards.
 
Training and Administration of the Reserve CAPT Selective Retention Board:

The FY-23 Selective Retention Board (#416) will convene 19 September 2022 and will consider for Gate 1 those captains promoted in FY-21 and for Gate 2 those captains promoted in FY18.  NAVADMIN 163/22 announced the FY-23 board.  Anyone desiring to submit additional information may use the generic template posted to the right.  This includes “don’t pick me” letters if planning to retire.  All correspondence needs to be received NLT than 10 calendar days before the board convenes (2359 on 18 September 2022).

Anyone not selected for retention at Gate 1 will be required to be released from active duty no later than 1 September 2024.  Anyone not selected for retention at Gate 2 will be required to be released from active duty no later than 1 September 2023.

SECNAVINST 1920.6D requires Training and Administration of the Reserve (TAR) captains to be involuntarily released from active duty at the end of three years time-in-grade (TIG) unless they are retained by a Selective Retention (SELRET) board.  The board is held annually and is conducted using two “gates” grouping those eligible by their competitive category (Unrestricted Line, Human Resources, Aviation Maintenance Duty Officer, and Supply Corps).  Gate 1 considers captains who are in their first full year time-in-grade and Gate 2 considers captains in their fourth year time-in-grade.  Gate 1 retention allows a captain to remain on active duty through at least 1 September of the fifth FY following the FY of promotion.  Gate 2 retention allows a captain to remain on active duty through 30 years of commissioned service or age 62, whichever comes first.
 
Training and Administration of the Reserve CDR Selective Early Release from Active Duty:

A TAR Commander SERAD Board is not expected to be held during FY23.  The last SERAD board was held in FY-11.
When required, SECNAVINST 1920.6D allows the convening of a TAR Commander Selective Early Release from Active Duty (SERAD) board.  The board is held by grouping TAR commanders by their competitive category and FY of promotion.  Normally, TAR commanders become SERAD eligible during the fourth fiscal year after their date of rank.  Those selected by a SERAD board will be involuntarily released from active duty by 1 September of the FY in which the board was convened, or by the 1st day of the 7th month following the month in which the board’s report was approved, whichever is later.
